Failure Date: 02/18/2012

Dual mass flywheel(dmf) detached itself,causing enormous damage to the transmission(dsg). Initially,I have to replace dmf,then crankshaft positioning sensor,crankshaft seal and bearing. This repair cost me $1,700. 00. After taking a closer look at the car,the mechanic found out that,because of the damagesdmf has caused to the transmission,the transmission is now leaking oil. A pieces of the dmf cut into the casing of the transmission and created a number of holes. As a result of all this,the mechanic suggested,as my only solution,to rebuilt transmission,which cost an additional $ 3,300. 00. Vw of America,denied any reimbursement,because warranty expired in January 2011. They can not explain why dmf faild. They just lost one customer.

I was informed by niello Volkswagen when I took my car in to be serviced for 2 recalls that I had a major oil leak. I then brought my vehicle in to sacramento european on 2/1/12 for an oil change and to find out what was the cause of my oil leak. I was informed by them that I did not have an oil leak, but a transmission leak. They stated that there was a technical service bulletin out that this is a known problem that the seal that joins the 2 transmission components is leaking. Clearly since there is a service bulletin out that this is a known problem, the transmissions that they have in these Volkswagen cars are defective and need to be replaced. My transmission is slipping when it shifts into second and third gears and also when I brake.

I had my 09 tdi towed into a v. W. Dealer today for a major oil leak. The details are as follows: I parked my tdi in my driveway this morning after a local drive. No mechanical problems were observed. In the afternoon I went for another drive. I barely got out of my driveway when the cars oil light started blinking, and the mfd said stop the vehicle-low oil. I pulled back in my driveway and noticed several liters of oil on the ground under my car. I had my vehicle towed to the dealer by a flatbed tow truck. The service manager called me into the shop and showed me that the oil filters housing cap had been screwed loose, and placed on-top of the housing upside down. The cap had a small piece missing just before the threads begin. Since the car had 1 1/2 quarts of oil still in the oil pan the service manager did not feel that any engine damage occurred. I explained to the manager that I had been home all day, that my car was locked, alarmed, and parked in my driveway. The manager insisted that someone did this damage to my vehicle. He could not explain how someone was able to get in the vehicle without the key, and without causing any damage or leaving any tool marks, or setting off the car alarm. I had my vehicles 10k service done at this dealership 800 miles ago. During that service the wrong oil was used, and the vehicle was severely overfilled with oil. These problems were caught by myself, and corrected before leaving the dealership. Is it possible that the dealer caused a third problem during my 10k service, such as not properly tightening the oil filter's cap, or was my vehicle vandalized by a mission impossible impersonator? is it probable that engine damage occurred to the vehicle? if what the dealer said is true this vehicle has a severe security flaw!.

Volkswagens use of cheap plastics on the oil stick of my 2002 Volkswagen Jetta caused plastic from the oil stick to fall into my motor and cause motor damage including an oil leak and eurasian auto service in panama city already has a vw product that is broken down in their shop, and even Volkswagens own service manager in panama city, mike boatwright, told vw they should authorize him to make the repairs but they refused, the ostensibly lowest bid plastics used for the 2002 vw's also caused mike boatwright to ask that vw replace my headlight lenses as they are creating a traffic hazard, and not only is this nationwide, but mallory horne of the florida dmv who referred me to you wrote to me that " your complaint has not fallen on deaf ears, I just got rid of my Volkswagen Jetta for the same headlight problem" and I will be happy to mail you a copy in support of my complaint, also walmart's service manager in callaway florida is the person who found that my car is now leaking oil due to Volkswagen failing to repair the motor and he says that he saw the same Volkswagen problem in new england at his previous job (scott). Also the cheap plastics used on my car that caused these safety traffic violations, were used on the glove box lock which is broken and the radio aerial which is broken. The first 2002 vw I was given broke down in traffic in the dark and was exchanged the following day. So there are more than enough witnesses that the 2002 Volkswagen Jettas should be recalled, me, jerry p carroll, mike boatwright, reggie at eurasian, mallory horne, and scott at walmart, in addition there are many students at my college with the same problem who are in hope that you will help them also. Breaking down in traffic with limited headlights is a national safety crisis, as far as deaths and injuries, entering zero only means that vw has managed so far to conceal any.

I'm not positive this constitutes a safety issue, but it may in the event of an accident since an aluminum oil pan could be severely damaged and could cause an oil spill, but below is a portion of the letter I submitted to Volkswagen using their online form. If this is not under your office's responsibilities, can you tell me who I should contact next? basically they told me it could take them 2 to 3 years to issue a recall if ever. Thank you. I took my 2002 Jetta in on Wednesday, may 10th for what should have been a routine oil change, but $330 dollars later was obviously not. My mechanic informed me that I needed a new oil pan. Something that is 99% of the time only replaced after an accident or after 15 years or so if it's rusted out. The reason: the oil pan itself is made of aluminum and the drain plug is made of steel. Anyone with half an ounce of engineering or materials knowledge (something I would hope and assume a Volkswagen parts designer has) knows that you don't manufacture a part out of a soft metal which has something screwed into it made out of a harder metal. The threads eventually get completely stripped after repeated oil changes. According to the service schedule in my owner's manual, oil changes are mandatory service required to keep the car under warranty. Also this could very well present a safety issue in the event of an accident due to leaking oil if the pan was damaged since it's made of aluminum. What has angered me the most about this is that Volkswagen obviously knows about this design defect and has not issued a recall. When my mechanic called the local Volkswagen dealer (and where I purchased my car) the parts department told him "OH yeah, we know about that problem. In fact we stock the redesigned part". The bottom of my new oil pan is now made of steel which it should have been in the first place.
